Am trying to connect my HTC Touch via a USB cable to Active Sync 4.5.

File>>connection settings>>connect

it searches and never connects. I have tried most of the items in the troubleshooting guide inculding adding the relevant ports to the firewall in McAffee but no joy.

Could someone walk me through the steps required to diagnose what the problem is?

Could be Windows Firewall or any other Desktop Firewall not allowing the connection to be made.  I would recommend looking at WF first making sure the "exception" check box is cleared and then if that doesn't get it maybe look at the other firewall utilities you have loaded, like ZoneAlarm.
